Hold It!

A good dedicated group of artists for our second session in November. The model came ready to deliver. He held this pose for thirty minutes and probably could have gone on longer. It was a welcome challenge for everyone.

Our lone session in December will be Monday the 14th at 7:00.

We will resume our twice a month meetings in January.

A Cold and Rainy Night

We had a small group of artists (5) turn out last Monday on a cold rainy night. The intimate group combined with an engaging model made for a wonderful drawing environment.

Our next session is Monday, November 23rd. There will be a male model.

There were good turnouts for the April sessions. We celebrated several birthdays and one group member getting into an art program. It is wonderful to see so many dedicated artists interested in working from the live figure. Kudos to all who attended and special thanks to our models.

New Time & New Location

Figure Drawing is now taking place at 923 1/2 Caroline Street, the second and fourth Monday of each month. The session will run from 7 - 9:30pm and the door will be locked at 7, so artists at work will not be disturbed by late arrivals.

A great session last Monday. Our thanks to Emily, for wonderful poses.

Monday, January 26th will be our last session at this location. Starting in March, we're going to be in a new Caroline St. space and draw twice a month, rather than weekly. The new location will free us up as to time and medium constraints also. I think it's a needed change, which is always energizing, and a break I'm looking forward to.

Robert will be posing for us on January 26th at Dragonfly Yoga.

New Year - New Drawings

Well, I'm back from New York and we'll be drawing at Dragonfly Yoga from 7:30 - 10. I saw a lot of friends, family and art. I stayed just 2 blocks from Central Park, in a great neighborhood. I visited the Metropolitan, the Guggenheim's "Zero" exhibit and saw the "Matisse Cut Out" show at MOMA. It was all good, the perfect solution to Christmas on my own.

Janet will be posing for us on Monday, January 5th, 2015!

Breanne will be posing for us on Monday, January 12th.

Hope to see you all there!
